Fairmont Hills RV Park (West Virginia) officially opened its doors on Monday, June 20. The park was unveiled to the community with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.

As per a report, the RV park features 43 spots, and NYM Development President Keyur Patel, who owns the business, said it’s the ideal spot for those who want to make a quick–or not so quick–stop. 

“We’re trying to cater to people who are traveling down I-79 and need an easy stop on the road for a quick night’s stay or a couple of nights if they want to explore the area,” he noted.

The park is next to the Clarion Inn, also owned by Patel, on the east side. Patel said that since a large piece of property was sitting unoccupied by the Clarion Inn, it was logical to make use of the land by constructing an RV park. 

“We had partners in other states who have developed RV parks, and it’s been a success for them,” Patel said.

“Especially after the pandemic, outdoor businesses are booming, and we thought it was a good opportunity to bring something to Marion County. We had a piece of land that was vacant, so we made this RV park that will benefit the community.”

Currently, there are 43 spots at the park, but Patel said there are plans to add 20 more sites and cabins to the property in the future. 

Monday marked the business’ first day of operation, and Patel said he’s ready to cater to travelers driving through the area.

“I’m very excited,” Patel said. “We’re ready to see this thing flourish after all the hard work that’s gone into it.”

Marion County Chamber of Commerce Board Chair Jonathan Board said that he’s thankful for Patel and his team for opting to invest in Marion County by developing the park.

“This was previously unused land, and we have a group of folks who are already here and invested in Marion County … who said, ‘We’re going to take this and develop it and make something wonderful for our community and for tourism coming in,'” Board said. “That’s a beautiful thing.”

According to its website, Fairmont Hills RV park has 42 full hook-up, affordable sites that can accommodate even the longest RVs, and offers outdoor adventures, level gravel-paved pads, and camping under the tall, shady trees.
